Ethan Chambers, Justin Erickson, Ian Fiel, Adrian Yamanoha, Daniel Hong, Jazmyn Beck; Alli Azvedo
Adrian Yamanoha claimed a long awaited first title, while Ian Fiel doubled his title total, in terrific JBT Southern California Conference action at Norwalk's Keystone Lanes.
Daniel Hong bowled brilliantly to capture the top seed in the scratch division matchplay bracket, but #4 Justin Erickson upended him in one semifinal to reach his first career title match, while #15 Yamamoto joined him in the rookie finalist club with a win over #3 Prestin Frazee. In the title match, Adrian rolled a clean game, but Erickson had a chance to swipe the title away with a tenth frame double. Justin wasn't able to get the first hit, and Yamamoto earned his first career JBT title with the exciting win.
Raeden Pimentel had the best 5-game total of his JBT career to nab the #1 matchplay seed, but fell in round two to #8 Ethan Chambers. Ethan consolidated that upset with a win over #4 Jason Weed, making back-to-back finals on the weekend, to reach the title match. His opponent would be Ian Fiel, who defended his #2 seed with wins over Jerry Wang, Kameron Taylor, and Akayla Orosco to reach the final. In that match, Ian remained in control for most of the game, earning his second career JBT title with a win over Chambers.
The day's Girls Scratch win went to Allison Azvedo, with a win over newcomer Jazmyn Beck, who had the high game of the day with a fine 279. Erickson got some revenge in U17, beating Ryland Pimentel in that finale.

If you're not sure about dress code, check with us. If you're new to us, the vast majority of the bowlers do dress in the 'bonus' dress code, and those points become very important, so plan accordingly.

Repeated 'no-shows' may result in you not being able to reserve a spot.
